The 100% online program in Human Services will launch for Fall 2013 enrollment and will lead to a Bachelor of Science degree (B.S.). This degree is designed to provide a human and behavioral science background for persons interested in entering professions such as counseling, case management, program administration, and similar endeavors. Human service practitioners work in a variety of settings for a broad range of organizations dedicated to helping others transition through their developmental issues and processes. Students often select the Human Services bachelor's degree program in preparation for a master's degree program in counseling in order to become licensed, professional counselors, especially in school, marriage and family, community agency, and college/university settings.
Professional employment in Human Services is applied in treatment centers, hospitals, child and youth care facilities, community mental health centers, licensed professional practice, colleges/universities, schools, academies, governmental and non-governmental organizations, institutions, group homes, foster and transitional care, in-home counseling, homeless and runaway shelters, community action agencies, wilderness and adventure programming, and similar programs for social and personal development.
